As the international art world descends on Seoul, Kiaf Plus, the first in a trio of fairs that also includes Frieze’s first edition in the city, has officially opened. The fair is a satellite to Kiaf, a bigger, long-established edition, and its VIP preview was held on Thursday afternoon at the SETEC convention.
Kiaf Plus focuses on emerging artists, in particular ones working in digital media, with works like NFTs. This tightly curated fair has numerous exhibitors from across Korea, a majority of whom are showing local talent, as well as foreign dealers who are exhibiting a mix of international and local artists. Notably, there’s an emphasis on pop culture and video game aesthetics. Split across three main halls, the works on view often exude joy.
